    Can not declare IE 11 as default program


    Hello,

    After upgrading to Windows 10, Outlook 2010 keeps asking how to open web links when I clicked.
    I keep telling him to use IE11. The registry update Looks like Microsoft removed if IE11.
    For if I click Edge or chrome then he start each link in Edge or chrome.
    I do not want to used Edge for now until it not possible creates a simple link using drag / drop.
    And especially until it do not sync favorites with other machines in my park (windows 7 et windows 8.1).

    Do you have an idea ?

    This is a bug or it is by Microsoft? If this is the case, I immediately make a retro pedal to windows 7.

    Thank you

    Hello Pmai, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    IE11 is still in Windows 10.

    If you like, you can use OPTION SIX in the tutorial below to "Set this program as default" for Internet Explorer to have IE11 open URL links.

    I have the same problem as the original poster. Your solution does not work -- at least, for links in Outlook 2010. No matter how you try to set IE 11 as the default browser, clicking a hyperlink in Outlook 2010 will open a window asking what program you wish to use to open the link. It gives you the option to continue using your default browser, or use Edge, or find some other program. It also has a checkbox to indicate that you want to do this from now on. Then, of course, you have to click "OK." NONE OF THIS HAS ANY EFFECT AT ALL (except to waste time). So, it takes four clicks to do what used to take only one click. Very annoying.

    BTW, this doesn't happen when you click on a hyperlink in a program like Acrobat. The only time I have this problem is with Outlook 2010.

    It works for me for links from within Outlook 2016.

    Interesting; I cannot get it to stick with Outlook 2010 either . May have to try OL 2016 and see if that works.

    Hello SoopaNutz and Brink
    For Outlook 2010, did you find a solution?
    I really do not intend to invest in Outlook 2016, just because of this problem.
    I am sure that there is simply a key in the registry but what?
    See you

    Pmai, I'm still looking for some solution, too. One work-around you could try would be to install FireFox and set it as your default browser. I've tried that, and I'm somewhat surprised at how good FireFox has become.
